Unlocking Sustainable Future with Firstgreen’s Building Energy Modeling Expertise

Published by firstgreen on

Building energy modeling (BEM) becomes an increasingly central aspect of architectural and engineering projects. By predicting building energy consumption, CO2 emissions, peak demands, energy costs, and renewable energy production, energy modeling forms the basis of truly integrated and efficient projects.

At Firstgreen Consulting, we understand the intricate details of BEM, and we have a robust partnership with the world’s leading tools, particularly with the Integrated Environmental Solutions’ Virtual Environment (IES VE). This partnership empowers us to perform fast, accurate, sub-hourly thermal simulations for new and existing buildings, irrespective of their size or complexity.

Leveraging IES VE for Integrated Energy Solutions

The IES VE suite is renowned globally for its superior interoperability with Building Information Modeling (BIM). The suite includes integrated Navigators specifically designed to support the most prevalent international rating schemes such as LEED, BREEAM, and WELL. Our close collaboration with IES empowers us to offer unparalleled expertise in utilizing this tool to the fullest.

Consultancy Services: Building Physics at Its Best

At the heart of our BEM consultancy is a thorough understanding of building physics. Our experts have a deep knowledge of how heat, air, moisture, and light interact within a building, enabling us to design and optimize engineering systems that enhance a building’s performance. Our consultancy services extend to:

  • Ventilation studies, using dynamic thermal simulation and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)
  • Daylight calculations, including accurate rendered images of the building
  • Heat transfer calculations for optimizing thermal stores
  • Energy modeling to test strategies and demonstrate compliance

Training: Empowering the Next Generation of BEM Professionals

Firstgreen believes in the power of knowledge sharing. We regularly organize training courses on IES VE, delivering quality programs recognized by the Green Building Council of Italy. In addition, we offer specific training modules tailored to corporate requirements. Our relationship with the Politecnico of Milano enables us to contribute lessons on dynamic energy simulation to the Master Pesenti school.

Unrivaled Support on IES VE

As an integral part of our services, we offer unparalleled support on IES VE. We are always available to assist our clients in managing licenses, generating technical offers, and providing prompt responses to any local requests or support needs.
